I Retired from Another Job...
People at the traditional retirement age have unique concerns. Can I collect Social Security? Will starting a new business affect my pension? Can I be sued as a consultant and risk the loss of my house or personal assets? If you are starting your own business for the first time as a second career, or monetized hobby, or consultant for your former corporate employer, you should find out the answers to these questions.

I Have Partners or Co-Owners...
When a business has more than one owner, you need an agreement, in writing. What happens if one owner gets divorced? Or becomes disabled? Or simply wants to retire? While things are beginning or going well, and relationships are stable that is the time to draft an operating agreement. Avoid costly litigation or being forced to account to your partner’s ex-spouse or figure out how to compensate a retiring or disabled co-owner. Decide how to leave your business to your children.

Being in Business in Maine
Being in Business in Midcoast Maine is a blog written by a business lawyer with an office in Camden Maine. Business owners and entrepreneurs learn important issues that could help them make more money, and avoid costly mistakes.
Limited liability companies (LLCs) are one of the most popular types of business entities. The LLC’s flexible taxation options are one reason it is preferred; LLC members can, for the most part, choose how they would like to be taxed. The LLC enjoys this flexibility because the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) does not recognize it as a distinct entity for federal tax purposes
For most entrepreneurs, handling business taxes is a daunting but necessary task. The complexities of tax preparation often lead business owners to procrastinate or neglect proper record keeping and tax deadlines.

If you are one of the many owners of a home-based small business, you should consider whether your home office meets the IRS requirements for the home office deduction, which is a sometimes overlooked way to reduce taxes.
The IRS does not require a specific type of record keeping system. Rather, you must simply use one that clearly shows your income and expenses.
Figuring out a business’s responsibility for collecting and remitting sales tax can be quite confusing for many business owners, especially those who are just starting a new business. If you make a mistake or fail to remit sales tax on time, your business could be subject to large fines or even lose the right to do business in a state.
